Clearing Up Misunderstandings and Breaking Laws

There is a rumor going around due to something I wrote which I want to clear up.

The Crafty Lady is not moving. When I wrote that I was moving, I was writing about me personally, Anna, moving to a totally different world called Nanaimo. If you look at the bottom of the blog posts you will notice that I sign them.

So although we appreciate the rush to get out here before our premature death - and by all means please keep it up - know that right now we are not moving and we are alive and well and planning to serve you for years to come. So you can all breathe.

It just shows how important it is to read the entire blog post and not just the first line and the sale. You miss so much if you only do that. Like all my witty repartee. Now why would you want to miss out on that?

Although now that I'm moving and have to leave the store, because the commute is just too far, you will no longer be able to read my witty repartee here on the blog. You'll have to search for it, or buy it instead.

So now that we've settled that...

There is lawlessness going on around here!

Did you know that it is illegal to label any textile "bamboo" only? You have to say "rayon made from bamboo" or "bamboo sourced viscose".

Bamboo is a short fibre used to make houses, furniture and bridges, plus you can eat it too. So if you're stuck on a bamboo bridge, and you get hungry, you can eat the bridge, although that might not be a good idea because then you're left hanging.

 To make bamboo into a soft fibre you have to use chemicals, so it's against the law to just claim that it's made from bamboo. It's still a natural fibre, but it's a natural man made fibre, like paper or children.

Well guess what we found in the store?

Illegal bamboo yarn. And from a well known, long time, highly respected name too!

So we figure it's better in your house than in our store. I mean, really, is any federal authority going to be tossing your house looking for incorrectly labeled yarn? But at any moment, because we are a place of business, we could have a swat team break down the door (even though it's unlocked and it only requires opening) carrying assault rifles and demanding our illegal bamboo yarn. And because we believe that if you're breaking the law you have to do something legal to balance it out, we also have legally labeled yarn on sale too. Besides, it just makes the illegal stuff easier to hide in your house if you put it with the legal stuff.

By the way, did you know that bamboo can grow three feet in twenty four hours? It's like that horror movie I watched as a kid where the plants grew through cracks in doors and windows and wound themselves around their hapless victims.

So here you go. Our sale this week.
